Push Piers

A sound foundation is the cornerstone of a safe home, guaranteeing both your home’s structural stability and your family’s well-being. When your foundation begins to settle unevenly or quickly, there will be warning signs that may indicate the need for push piers to level your home and prevent further damage.  

Taking swift action at the first signs of issues like cracks in the drywall or doors that stick is vital. Fortunately, a trustworthy solution is within reach for North Carolina homeowners facing these common challenges. 

Discover the transformative power of Tar Heel Basement Systems’ SettleStop Push Piers, engineered to offer permanent stability and even the possibility of elevating your foundation back to its initial position. Explore why our push piers are the prime choice for foundational repairs, standing as a beacon of trust and quality in the industry. 

This guide explains what push piers are and how they work, underlining their necessity and the advantages of choosing Tar Heel Basement Systems. 

Understanding Push Piers 

Push Piers are crafted from galvanized steel and mechanically driven into the ground beneath your foundation until they reach a stable soil layer or bedrock to offer reliable support. These devices go beyond unstable and shifting soils to find a solid foundation for your home. 

Functioning as resistance piers, these systems reach a point of resistance deep in the ground, establishing a strong, resilient support base for your dwelling. They integrate seamlessly with a range of solutions for foundation settlement, basement waterproofing, crawl space insulation, and concrete repairs, offering a comprehensive strategy to maintain the structural health of your home over a long period. 

Identifying the Need for Push Piers 

The necessity for push piers arises when there are discernible signs of foundation settlement. These symptoms can encompass: 

Procrastinating on addressing these signs can result in compounded issues, escalating repair costs down the line. Reach out to Tar Heel Basement Systems, the specialists in local foundation repair, to curb further deterioration. 

Push Piers 

Push Piers are more than a mere recommendation; they are a necessity to curb escalating foundational issues, avoiding a cycle of recurring repairs and exponentially increasing expenses. These piers facilitate the stabilization of your foundation, potentially restoring it to its original level. 

If you put off leveling or stabilizing your settling foundation, you may find yourself with wide cracks that promote moisture, mold growth, doors and windows that no longer close, and decreased energy efficiency.
